Split release by Sommor Records and Pakistan Rock And Roll Crusade. Warlock could be considered the first satanic/occult hard-rock band from Spain. With roots in proto-doom band Necrophagus, formed in Madrid by singer/guitar player Victor Ramos in 1974, Warlock were heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, Lucifer's Friend, and Hawkwind, but they were too dark and wild-looking for the record companies of the time. During their brief existence, 1977-79, they supported the Ian Gillan Band at the Teatro Monumental, Madrid, 1979. They also shared stage with bands like Burning, Cai, Teddy Bautista & Canarios, Azahar, John Martyn, Eduardo Bort, etc. In 1978, they recorded a bunch of demos, collected here for the first time. Raw and wild lo-fi psychedelic hard-rock/proto-doom with space-rock touches. Eight self-penned songs with titles like "Archives Of The Universe", "Cortocircuito", "Earth", "Control Perdido", "Space Ritual" (which is not a Hawkwind cover but a tribute to Dave Brock's band, whom Victor once met in France), plus a cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid". RIYL: Black Sabbath, Lucifer's Friend, Pentagram, Hawkwind...
